Morning everyone!

How’s life/love/money going over there?

A lot of people have asked when my next project is going live (curation site w/ The Motley Fool), and while it continues to change, I am happy to report that we should be back on track now and will have a solid date for you soon :) Turns out it’s a whole other world launching something with a company vs by yourself, haha, but we’re getting there! And just been laying low in the meantime and trying to be the best daddy/husband/home schooler I can be… A full-time job in itself ;)

I miss you guys though!! What have you been up to??! Hit reply and tell me all your juicy secrets!!

Here are some of my favorite reads from around the community lately… Be back again soon! XOXO,
